Why would Sarah Palin rate Barack Obama a "4"?
By Harold Witkov

Barbara Walters asked Sarah Palin, " On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the best, where do you rate Barack Obama?" Sarah Palin gave Barack a "4."

As a big fan of Sarah Palin, I must admit I was disappointed with the number Governor Palin assigned President Obama. I certainly would have rated him much lower. So I asked myself, "Why would Sarah Palin rate Obama a "4"?" I came up with the following:

1. Sarah Palin was rating Barack Obama's looks on a scale of 1 to 10.

2. Since he has been president less than a year, Sarah Palin needs a few numbers below "4" so that, over the course of time, she can lower his rating.

3. Since Barack Obama is still relatively popular, Palin did not want to be too hard on him yet.

4. Sarah Palin was able to explain President Obama's shortcomings in the interview anyway, so why bother playing Barbara Walter's numbers game.

5. Sarah Palin was rating President Obama's first ten months in office as a "4" out of "10" on the Richter scale.
